  • August 2023

    We developed an on-chip carrier-envelope phase detector. For more details, check the paper in Nature Communications. Our simple chip enables 3D phase scanning AND sculpting without a vacuum chamber, with a resolution of ~500 nm!

  • December 2022

    For some hot results on hot electron probing with optical tools, see our paper in Nature Communications.

  • March 2022

    We published new insight into the famous tunneling process of electrons through potential barriers. Our results on nonadiabatic tunneling are already out in Nano Lett.

  • December 2021

    Benedek Nagy, a former PhD student of our group defended his thesis on ultrafast damage research on femtosecond mirrors and plasmonic nanostructures. Once again, summa cum laude. Congratulations on this great result and good luck for Dr. Nagy for his career in industry.

  • April 2021

    We achieved the control of optically induced currents in dielectric media with a record breaking repetition rate (80 MHz) and pulse energies as low as 300 pJ!

    Results are published in the leading journal “Optica”. For a more accessible version of the story, see the press release of the Wigner Centre both in English and Hungarian.

  • January 2021

    Beatrix Fehér and Ádám Rieder joined the group for their PhD. We also have 2 Wigner internship students, Szilárd Takács and Csaba Németh. Welcome all!

  • June 2020

    Our review paper “Strong-field nanooptics” is published at Rev. Mod. Phys If you need a copy, just let us know.

  • May 2020

    Balázs Bódi defended his PhD thesis on high harmonic generation experiments and simulations, summa cum laude. Congratulations Dr. Bódi!
